If I change my degree by an internal course transfer, will my Grade Point Average (GPA) change?

Question:

If I change my degree by an internal course transfer, will my Grade Point Average (GPA) change?

Answer:

If you are changing to a different course (degree) (e.g. from BA to BCom), the process consists of the following four stages:

  1. Your current course (degree) will be discontinued.
  2. A new admission will be made for your new course.
  3. Any units you’ve previously passed, and any designated credits and/or exemptions, that are required in your new course will be transferred across. Units which you have failed (F) or withdrawn (W) from will not be transferred, however they will remain on your transcript under the course they were studied in.
  4. Each course will have its own GPA.

 

If you are remaining in the same degree but changing to the newest curriculum or to a new major in a different faculty, your current course will be updated to the newest (current year's) curriculum but there will be little impact on your transcript. Your GPA will not change.

If you will be moving into the newest curriculum, please consult the online handbook for the most recent course requirements. Please seek program advice from your Faculty if you have any questions.
